This is not a pleasant read. ZZZ has a short piece detailing the billions of tiny and very dangerous bits of space junk currently orbiting the earth.
‘When orbiting debris collides, it usually does so at such a speed that it is more than pulverized–it is liquefied and turned into not one or two, not even dozens, but millions of new pieces of space debris. And all of them are hazardous..’
That’s another fine mess you’ve gotten us in to!
